The Pardubice City Council gave a green light to the BlackBird Real Estate residential project
BlackBird Real Estate, a new enterprise operating on the real estate market, focuses on a major property development project in Pardubice. In the next decade, more than a thousand new flats are to be built in the area between S. K. Neumann Avenue and the Chrudimka river, near the Červeňák Nature Park and close to the Pardubice centre. The project which is now in the phase of an urban study has already been given the green light from the Pardubice councillors. Thus, the developer may now ask for a building permit and then start the first phase of the construction.
Hundreds of new flats will be built in the coming years on a brownfield area of 250,000 m2, where one of the bases of the Czech Army was located until 1994. The urban study, commissioned by the city of Pardubice, drafts a total of 73,000 m2 of greenery, and 22,000 m2 will be set aside for sports and recreation facilities. At the same time, the developer plans to provide for a non-residential space in the range of up to 70,000 m2 and designed for civic facilities.
"It was this fact that the councillors were most interested in our discussion. I assured them that the project was very variable due to its phasing and during its implementation we could respond to future demographic developments," says Jan Kotaška, CEO of BlackBird Real Estate. The study was presented to the councillors by Mr. Kotaška and by the study´s author - Mr. Karel Albrecht from the Hradec Králové Design and Development Office, s.r.o..
Last year, the Commission for Architecture and Urban Planning of the City of Pardubice ruled negatively on the study, and some of its members criticized the project in the media. However, the Pardubice councillors confirmed by a vote that the developer incorporated some of the Commission's comments into the project and there is no need for the commission to discuss the study again.
"It is crucial for us that our project has been given the green light by councillors and we can take further steps to implement it. We understand that Pardubice councillors want to negotiate with us about the project and we are, of course, open to discussion. After obtaining all the necessary permits, we would like to start the construction of the first stage of the project in its western part at S. K. Neumann Avenue in the second half of next year,” adds Jan Kotaška.
